Advanced radiofrequency skin tightening treatment delivers targeted heat deep within your skin, triggering the production of new skin-strengthening collagen. This will give you firmer skin and can help to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and stretchmarks.

Our advanced radiofrequency skin tightening treatment uses the innovative Exilis Elite machine to deliver a combination of radiofrequency energy and ultrasound, both of which help to contour areas of your face or body where you would like your skin to be firmer.
This treatment works by targeting thermal heat deep into the layers of your skin. This targeted thermal energy disrupts the existing collagen fibres (the protein responsible for strong, healthy skin that depletes as we get older), causing them to contract and lift your skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening also stimulates new collagen production, which smooths the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
* Results may vary
Before your radiofrequency skin tightening treatment, we’ll talk to you about your skin health and any particular issues you would like to address, as well as carrying out a skin assessment. This treatment is particularly suitable for improving areas where your skin might be loose or starting to sag.
Your aesthetician will cleanse your face and apply a gel to the treatment area, so that they can move the handheld Exilis Elite device freely over your skin. You will feel a warming sensation caused by the radiofrequency energy, but the treatment is comfortable thanks to skin cooling technology.
You may experience some mild redness or swelling after your radiofrequency skin tightening treatment, but other side effects are unlikely. You can even apply make-up immediately after the procedure is complete. Always follow our aftercare advice to ensure the best treatment outcome
As the name suggests, this treatment is designed to tighten your skin. Although the results will not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift, you should expect to experience visible lifting and firming of your skin in the treatment areas.
This is an excellent option if your skin is starting to look a bit ‘jowly’ around your jawline and you would like more definition. It can also help to reduce a double chin and smooth away visible lines and wrinkles. By triggering your skin’s natural healing response, this is also an excellent option for improving the appearance of acne scarring.
Radiofrequency skin tightening treatment delivered with the Exilis Elite technology is suitable for all skin types. However, the reason we begin any treatment plan with a consultation is to discuss the issues you wish to address and your treatment goals, as well as assessing your skin to make sure the treatment you want is the best fit for you.
We recommend six sessions of radiofrequency skin tightening to give you the optimal results. Your skin will create new collagen and elastin as a healing response triggered by the radiofrequency energy, which means that you should see ongoing improvements post-treatment. The results should last for 6-24 months.
